Is Breast Reduction Right For You?

When it comes to plastic surgery for the breasts, many women want to go bigger. However, there is a significant number of females who want just the opposite from their plastic surgeon. For the right individual, a breast reduction can not only improve appearance but also alleviate physical discomfort as well. At pēkomd®, we proudly offer a full menu of plastic surgeries for the breasts, including breast procedures that reduce the size of the breasts.

What is Reduction Mammoplasty?

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure designed to decrease the size and volume of overly large breasts by removing excess breast tissue and skin. This procedure is typically considered by women who experience physical or emotional discomfort due to excessively large breasts.

Why Consider Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction can be desired for many reasons, and it’s not just women. Men who have breast tissue, known gynecomastia, can also take advantage of reduction mammoplasty. Breast reduction can be sought after due to cosmetic reasons, physical/mobility issues or emotional health.

At pēkomd®, we offer breast reduction surgery for patients who have the following concerns:

  • Chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain: Women with large breasts may experience chronic pain and discomfort due to the weight of their breasts, which can strain the muscles in the neck, back, and shoulders.
  • Skin irritation and rashes: Excessively large breasts can rub against the skin, causing irritation and rashes in the breast crease or under the breasts.
  • Difficulty finding well-fitting clothing: Women with large breasts may have difficulty finding clothing that fits well and flatters their figure.
  • Limitations on physical activity: Large breasts can make it difficult to participate in physical activities, such as running or jumping, and may cause discomfort during exercise.
  • Emotional distress: Women with excessively large breasts may experience emotional distress, such as self-consciousness, anxiety, or depression, due to the attention their breasts attract or difficulty finding clothing that fits properly.

Breast reduction surgery can provide relief from these physical and emotional discomforts, resulting in improved quality of life and increased confidence and self-esteem. As your trusted and qualified plastic surgeon, pēkomd® will discuss the potential risks and benefits of breast reduction surgery and determine if it is the right option for you.

Is Breast Reduction Covered Under Insurance?

Breast reduction is one of the few plastic surgeries that may be covered under your medical insurance plan – if it is deemed medically necessary. However, coverage can vary depending on the individual insurance plan and the specific circumstances of your case. In general, insurance companies may consider breast reduction surgery medically necessary if the patient has documented physical symptoms such as chronic pain in the neck, back or shoulders, skin irritation or rashes, or difficulty with physical activities.

At pēkomd®, we are happy to help determine if your Insurance company will cover your reduction mammoplasty as well as provide the documentation that may be needed. It is important to fully understand the potential costs and coverage limitations associated with this breast surgery procedure upfront.

Patient Experience

Dr. Koltz with team member
Kristin M.

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Koltz and his staff! His staff is so sweet the moment you walk in the door. I had lost a significant amount of weight and was left with a lot of loose skin. Dr. Koltz listened to me, addressed my concerns, and went over several options along with going into detail about each option. He was not pushing me towards other procedures and really kept my best interest in mind. He is beyond talented and am thrilled with my results. I am so happy with my decision and could not thank Dr. Koltz and his staff enough for being so fantastic!
